We are 8 young water professionals from Europe, and we are following the European Junior Water programme. The European Junior Water Programme aims to build a community of young European water management professionals who share a deep commitment to addressing today’s and future water and climate change issues.
For this program we are doing research for the organisation Water Europe about human capital in the water sector in Europe. The objective is to map the situation in Europe Therefore, we would like to ask you to fill in this survey as you are one relevant stakeholder.
For this survey we use the definition of human capital of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development). According to the OECD, human capital is defined as:
“the knowledge, skills, competencies and attributes embodied in individuals that facilitate the creation of personal, social and economic well-being".
